Kickstart the Progress City Primer

  • At the end when it says “We’ll keep you updated on these projects in future Dateline: Walt Disney World” All I could think of was some guy droning, canceled cause he died, canceled cause it bombed, canceled just cause, canceled, canceled, canceled”

    very, very interesting…
    well, the hotels got built at least. Because hotels make money.

    But that roller coaster behind the Boardwalk – ugh.

    I can tell the plans weren’t very far along for Russia & Switzerland -more of a “see, you should sign the paperwork so we can get going since we’re already telling the world about your pavilion.”

    “It’s a backstage look at how movies are made – except all of the information is wrong” – awesome.

    I remember seeing all the Disney Decade artwork up at the welcome center in Ocala. Really looked like they were going to pull out all the stops. Oh well.

    I find the guy’s pronunciation of “Port Orleans” oddly precise. I know lots of people outside of the city who say “New Or-LEANS” and everyone I’ve met in the city always said “New AW-lins” (or rather, “NAW-lins”), so this guy’s insistence on “Port OR-le-uns” sounds forced.

  • DUDE! MATTERHORN BOBSLEDS AT EPCOT!

    Let’s start a petition.

  • LOL @ “It’s a backstage look at how movies are made – except all of the information is wrong”

    Anton – THANK YOU for mentioning his weird pronunciation of New Orleans. I had noticed that and meant to include it in the article but forgot. Very random – didn’t anyone in the recording studio ask for a second take? Hehe…

    PS. I want all these things still. And I’m still mad about Swolphin ruining the EPCOT sightlines.

  • Cool find! Though it’s sad that here we are twenty years later and STILL no new countries have entered World Showcase.
